President Ruto Kenyata of Kenya, Museveni of Uganda and Paul Kagame of Rwanda are expected to share progress on the projects being fast-tracked along the northern corridor. The Northern Corridor serves Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, South Sudan and the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
During their forthcoming meeting on Thursday in Kampala, the three leaders will present a report on achievements registered in various sectors since the last summit in Kigali in November 2013. Uganda will present a report on railway development, oil refinery development and political federation. But Kenya will report on energy generation, pipeline construction, and human resource capacity building in railway, energy and oil refinery.
During the last meeting in Kigali, Museveni, Kenyata and Kagame launched the single customs territory on northern corridor to help facilitate free movement of goods. The days that trucks spend on the way from Mombasa port to Kigali have since reduced from 22 to five.
